Maybe the republican klowns with floating homes on Staten Island and in NJ, will now wake up and vote for candidates that understand the seriousness of climate change and the need to transition to 21st century, non-carbon technologies!!

I have no power (I'm in Chappaqua, in Westchester county). What happens if the power is still out on Tuesday? How and where do we vote?

What about polling places that have been changed because of storm?
I'm sure that some former places are not useable, or perhaps have even been "wiped out."
How can prospective voters learn of this?

Brian, pls ask the speaker what is the latest news regarding the conflict of interest with The Romneys owning
shares in the Ohio voting machines?

correction--I meant to say EARLY VOTING IN NY STATE

Also in reply to John A: with this joint appearance today, Christie may just have re-elected Obama. It clears the way for Christie in 2016...

Hooray! Here is my comment:




My question: has this been proposed by any state legislator? Has Cuomo or anyone spoke about it? I believe there are no over 30 states have it. Why not us??

How much traction does Cristie have nationwide after the RNC?
His near endorsement of Obama is fantastic.
